So we're bringing you a sequinned dress pattern you can buy from McCalls to sew for your or your teen's prom dress. For fabric, Joel & Sons has a nice selection of sequinned fabric to choose from. We love the sparkle and glow that sequins projects!
We found a great blog post to give youtips on how to sew with sequins fabrics. Burdastyle also posted a nice Sequin Savvy blog post you can refer to when sewing your sequinned dress. For an alternative to a dress, try Vogue Patterns' sequinned jumpsuit for a dressy pants look. Whichever way you go, sewing the dress will no doubt be cheaper, and create an even more sentimental Prom experience you and/or your teen will cherish forever.
As usual, if you make it, share it with us in the comments below! We may feature it in an upcoming installment of our Prom series.
